UA residence halls & life

For many, an important part of college life is living on campus in a residence hall. Finding the right housing fit provides once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for friendships and activities. At UA, only a portion of the student body lives on campus, giving our resident students a taste of a small-college atmosphere.

We want your room to be a place where you feel at home, so each one is planned and furnished with that in mind. We have coed residence halls; double rooms and suites and high rises. There are even on-campus apartments. Although we can't guarantee students get their first choice in room locations, we certainly try our best to find the best housing fit available.

Freshmen outside of Summit, Portage, Stark, Medina and Wayne counties are required to live in the University residence halls their first year.
